This stage of the pregnancy has been the most difficult for me. Two generations of early babies and an earlier ultra sound due date really had me expecting this baby's arrival sooner. I do logically know that this extra "wait time" is giving Ethan the last little finishing touches that his body and organs need. That is what is most important-a healthy baby! However, it's hard waking up everyday thinking, "Is today the day?" My body is progressing, and things are really moving along which is SO good-it means I don't have to go through it all at once. I am however still REALLY uncomfortable. You know those bugs that once on their back, can't roll back over? Ya, that would be about what I feel like. My 5 ft. 2 in. frame has about reached its breaking point. I guess that's what happens when you marry a 6 ft. 4. in. Mountain Man. Although I am nervous to deliver a big baby, I am glad to see that Ethan has got his father's genes. I imagine the future... these tall strapping sons, twice my size, standing next to me. People will look at us and think, "that little lady is your mother?!!!" Proudly, I will be able to call them mine. I'm really excited to kiss Ethan's squishy little cheeks and hold him in my arms. In reality it won't be too much longer now... even if everyday does feel somewhat of an eternity.
